We have cable primarily for the “nesting channels”: Food Network and HGTV. Tonight on Food Network was the premiere of this year’s Halloween Wars, and it was a blast.
There are five teams, each made up of a cake artist, a sugar artist, and a pumpkin carver. They make scary creations on a theme, with tight time limits. So far, it’s a lot of fun. They eliminated the worst carvers tonight, though there’s one more mediocre team I think needs to go. I love a good sculpt! It’s hard to keep all five teams straight, but so far, team Crypt Keepers has distinguished themselves with good storytelling and execution.
It’s a fun concept. I didn’t have cable for the previous seasons, so I missed out. Looking forward to following this fun show.
I love Halloween Wars! Good episode tonight but I hope one of the teams comes out with a not-so-ghoulish style. All the previews seem to focus on that. I admit that I like a bit of whimsy with my Halloween!
Haven’t seen last night’s episode yet, it is on the DVR. But I have loved the past seasons and look forward to this one. Derek Mears, who played Jason in the F13 remake film, is a guest judge on the Oct. 27th episode, I believe. Very exciting!
I’m actually more excited about Tony Todd, who is on next week. Candyman is one of my all-time favorites.
